of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
of bad stuff. just this week the libya situation put the president on the defensive. the economy speaks for itself. so the only place the voters can really see the obama-biden ticket under pressure is in the debates. on the other side we're hoping governor romney will sit for an interview with us. we're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home dep
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"
%, increase spending on the defense budget by $2 trillion, increase medicare above ryan's idea above $716 billion. you can't take in less and spend more and balance it. that's why mitt romney, buy a $2 calculator and you'll see your plan doesn't work. >> but you're forgetting, you know, we never hear where conservatives want to spend. he wants to spend on defense. he gave a speech to the virginia military institute where he talked about if i'm president i'll buy 11 ships and including three submarines. that's a lot of money. >> the admirals don't even want the ships. just the military industrial complex wants to make the ships. >> do you want to take this one? >> you got the line. we're going to rebuild spending on the homeland. >> my bad, yeah. >> in all seriousness. >> because al qaeda's got the submarines threatening. >> governor, you're an elected official. you know when you run on a plan, you can't get -- there's a danger in getting so specific up front that you give away the house before you've even been elected into office. so mitt romney has laid down the principles by which he's
is shameless self-promoter. >> are you getting defensive? >> you seem defensive. >> that's the next point. career killer. >> this is a problem, too be more diplomatic don't get defensive. >> that makes perfect sense. i predict you might do the third one, mike. making a rash decision. >> yeah. many times things will come out of my mouth but here is the problem. i know it's an inappropriate thing to say but it comes out anyway. that is a rash decision. >> making rash decisions. >> it's always better. there is some reasons happened in my family life. i don't know what it was. i know that if i reacted immediately to it then it would have been bad. i waited like a day and i think i called my parents. i don't know what it was. it ended up being better that i waited. >> that's maturity. >> i know. in my 20's i wouldn't have done that. >> the next one i think is important. do i think this is even better than being a self-promoter the mistake you make is not being assertive. you should be aer assertive. you should speak up for what you want the squeaky wheel gets the worm. i may be mixing them up.
that defense contractors must send out notices to employees that will be laid off. they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor in looking at it going from 15 to 45% in were one with some probability, -- in january, you are worried about being in the market. if we go over the fiscal club, it would be irresponsible in the extreme. the entire issue with the fiscal cliff is to get from here to spring 2013 being goods to words in the economy and not causing a recession. that should be the goal. if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the payroll tax cut, the temporary holiday, i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that will go away. i consider it inconceivable we will get rid of the new taxes between now and june were one. -- january 1. that places a real premium on avoiding the rest of the tax hikes and spending cuts. i think the sensible thing to do is to say to congress, and your strong this in case -- your strongest debate, please extend tax rates for one year, and would you get to the sequester, the $109 billion across-the- board spending cuts for defense and non-
enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply qaeda. while i have a trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> it garnered a headline in "usa today." romney's hope is not a strategy. susan glasser, how much of his speech was against president obama and what he stunned? and how much of slain at his own trajectory and agenda? >> mostly most was the challenger, this is a critique of the obama policy and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of hi
into defense of the many ludicrous and inaccurate things he's said where biden has more experience and a very clear agenda staying boiled to the president. you know, there is a little bit of a wildcard. maybe not a huge one. but ryan is smart. but also very self-centered. so he could get really caught up. >> i wonder, is there an actual skill to being a vice president? we joke that the only thing touf do is stay alive, right? but in the sarah palin case, there was this sense that wait a minute, by putting her on the ticket, if she isn't adequate to be president, it makes me question john mccain's judgment. are they above the bar where there's no real quality difference? >> i think there's an open question about ryan. he can be glib and telegenic that comes across as competent where palin didn't have that skill. we can't say l about. j was the last time a vice president made -- palin in 2008 is a dramatic one. estimates that it was one, 1.5 points is what she cost john mccain for being on the ticket. which is huge. think back to dan quayle. i've never seen a more dramatic contrast between the
was up on the ropes the entire time. he needs to get off the ropes or people think he's playing defense. also he needs to call out mitt romney on the lies. there is an objective reality. you can give speeches the next day and hope headlines rebut the claims being made by mitt romney, but the best venue in which do to it is to do it is the debate itself. does he have to get more aggressive. >> i think he needs to get his hands around the fundamental issues of the campaign. mitt romney, someone who lived under his barely distinguishable leadership pit pit is a preposterous public figure. it's absurd that four years after the financial sector almost burned down the world that one of our major political parties would elect mitt romney for president. it's absurd that the principle reason for his candidacy for six months was running away from all the good he did in massachusetts. and it's preposterous to believe that he suddenly made this turn to the middle for any other reason but naked political expediency. he's a ridiculous figure on many levels. unless the president is willing to illustra
! >>neil: it is a balance of sacred cows from the g.o.p. defending defense spending to democrats trying to save big bird, we have seen it at both debates and we are seeing it in races across the country. >> under president obama there has been $500 billion taken out of the military and sequestration going into affect that is another $500 billion which are draconian cuts that hurt our ability to protect the national security and the last few weeks have shown this is a very dangerous world. >>neil: that was ted cruz the republican senate candidate in texas with me yesterday in kentucky. now, fair and balanced, the democratic challenger. where do you, sir, see this race ultimately decided, not your own, in general, if you had to distinguish between parties right now. how do you look at it? >>guest: well, between myself and mr. cruz it is a very different background. i have legislative experience, i have passed major pieces of legislation in this state and i am the more -- he wants to get rid of the i.r.s., i will support social security and medicare and medicaid and that the difference. he
president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who shoul
-- made the defensive play of the night when he jumped at the wall and caught prince fielder's blast. take another look at it. there it is. the a's used great fielding and pitching to shut out the tigers, 2-0. the team will play game four of their series tonight. detroit leads 2-1. >>> the giants and the reds went to extra innings in cincinnati. reds' third baseman scott rolen bobbled a grounder. there it is, allowing buster posey to score. the giants took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the tenth and then held on to win the game. the reds host the giants this afternoon, leading the series 2-1. >>> ben balt competes like any other boy, even competes in triathlon. nothing seems to stop him even though he lost part of his right leg to cancer. but something did stop ben in his last race in florida. his prosthetic leg broke in half. a group of marines was watching the triathlon. the marines lifted ben up and carried him across the finish line. ben's mom said everybody was crying and cheering on ben and the marines. very nice. very nice. >>> the next hour of the "cnn newsroom" begins right now. s
romney is a little more of a patriot and will handle foreign affairs and defense much better and i and i will say something hardly anybody says on the air any more. i'm very much prolife and i will always take the prolife candidate. >> shannon: foreign policy. how do you think a president romney would be different, better than president obama? >> i think after a clear terrorist al-qaeda inspired attack on the u.s. consulate that killed a u.s. ambassador he would not blame a filmmaker in cerritos, california. he would blame kade an al-qaede terrorists. i think he would stand up for america. >> shannon: on the issue of prolife. something we do cover a lot at fox, social issues even though there are some republicans who say stay away from it. not a winner for us. >> not a winner for me either. >> shannon: you are always a winner. >> shannon: what do you think it means for voters because there are voters who the social issues are what drive them to the ballot box or keep them home. >> a lot of that is going on. some voters say you are antiwomen because you are not' louing women to have unlim
army post in 2009. his defense attorneys claim the order violates his religious rights because of his muslim faith. >>> for closure rates hitting five-year low last month. the second straight month of declines. >>> kellogg's recalling millions of boxes of material warning they are cone tam nated by millions of metal mesh. frosted mini wheats. frosted mini wheats bite-sized. enjoy your breakfast. alisyn: we have a fox news alert from colorado where police just wrapped up a news conference on jessica ridgeway who disappeared walking to school last friday. police found a body in a denver suburb but they're not saying the remains are related to ridgeway's disappearance. dan springer is in colorado. dan, what did we learn at this news conference? >> reporter: well, alisyn, in a word, nothing. we know police found a body last night at 7:30, 11 miles away from where jessica disappeared or where she was last seen on her house on friday. other than that nothing was reported at the news conference. it lasted less than a minute. police took no questions. we do have live aerials of the area where
want to get a handle on the defense of the problem. periodically something will hit local or national press. there's an interesting story about a teacher in ohio. what she think is lost is the extent this problem is how often it happens and the harm that is truly felt by the students and their families. when they don't share the majority faith. so one of the reasons we focused on south carolina is we had a case they are in chesterfield county where there was a whole host of abuses among them. there was one day where the school invited some local ministers and the school's stated intent and purpose as many kids and if you go to school suspension. we represented a student and his family. when the father complains, you go by the principles he needs to get right with god. lucky for us, the christian rapper actually recorded it all and put it up on youtube, so the proof is not as difficult in that case as it often is. it is a springboard to look statewide. we look at these nationwide issues come over right now we have this focus there. that is an issue that needs to be addressed by as and
come after a flurry of early defenses from the obama campaign. there was blaming the dishonesty. who were whoa talking to the other day? dick durbin, wasn't he saying he was so stunned by the president -- by mitt romney lying that he just couldn't get an answer out? >> yes. >> and then, of course, the whole pressure from the high altitude comments. i'm just throwing them -- i don't make them up. i just repeat them. columnist joel stein, his book qualified man made: a stupid quest for masculinity." let's talk about the v.p. debate. you'll be watching it, obviously. >> i am. i'll be at a book thing, which will have wine from this winery. it will be kind of a drinking game. hopefully there will be a tv where i can watch it. >> you are a drinking game expert. if there is such a thing. >> no. that's waet to keep these debates interesting. i will be drinking this stark raving wine. i'm jewish. i have jew stomach. the things i'll be asking require requires a lot of sips. every time joe biden mentions amtrak, every time he refers himself in third person. >> that's a good one. >> he calls him
